‘We don’t play to lose’: Knicks not focusing on lottery odds

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — David Fizdale understands. He gets Knicks fans’ desire to secure the best possible odds to land the best possible prospect. Who wouldn’t want Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett or Ja Morant? But it’s not going to change anything about how he coaches his team. “I’m not wired to lose on purpose,” Fizdale said Wednesday. “That just...

David Fizdale explains what is behind his relentless optimism

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — David Fizdale’s first 15 years an NBA coach resulted in nine playoff berths and two NBA titles. His one full year as an NBA head coach led to the postseason. He isn’t used to losing, certainly not to the extent he has as the Knicks’ first-year head coach. He’s not used to having a roster...

Former draft bust becomes unlikely hero for Knicks

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Oh Henry! In this Knicks season of tanking and auditions, Henry Ellenson, a 2016 Pistons first-round draft bust, entered the mix Tuesday at the Garden against red-hot Orlando. After Ellenson played a career-high 36-minutes, the Knicks had a 108-103 victory. Ellenson signed a 10-day contract last week. He had been waived by the Pistons on...

What the hell is Kyrie Irving thinking about?

NY Daily News (Mark Fischer) — Boston Beware: The Kyrie glare is back. It’s not as distinguishable as, say, The Manning Face, but it similarly tells a striking story of despair. Lost hope for one team. Perhaps jubilation for another down the road. What we do know: A screengrab from Tuesday night’s clash between the underwhelming...

Knicks somehow on winning streak as tank takes hit

Knicks actually on winning streak as Mitchell Robinson dominates

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Break up the Knicks. Seriously, break them up. At this rate, they may win themselves out of the Zion Williamson sweepstakes. The Knicks suddenly have a pulse, winners of three of four and two in a row at the Garden, where they previously had lost 18 in a row, and they rode the broad shoulders...

Enes Kanter lives out everyone's nightmare with new Trail Blazers teammates

NY Daily News (Mark Fischer) — It took half a season for Enes Kanter to escape David Fizdale’s doghouse , but 30 minutes to find his way out of a sweltering elevator alongside his newly-minted Portland teammates. The NBA motor-mouth was his normal-joyous self as he and several Trail Blazers — superstar Damian Lillard included...

Knicks are the perfect second chance for Henry Ellenson

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks are 1-0 this season in games 6-11 big man Henry Ellenson has played. It’s a start. Ellenson, the 2016 Pistons first-round pick, was waived by Detroit on Feb. 8 to make room for veteran guard Wayne Ellington. The Knicks pounced, signing him last week to a 10-day contract after the All-Star break. The...

Gregg Popovich and New York: A love affair that triumphs ugly losses to the Knicks and Nets

NY Daily News (Chris Sheridan) — A bearded, gray-haired man was walking through the streets of Soho on Sunday, meandering this way and that way in his favorite NBA city not named San Antonio.

Mitchell Robinson sets lofty blocks goal as Knicks role grows

NY Post (Marc Berman) — Knicks rookie center Mitchell Robinson believes he can deliver a half-dozen bagels — rather blocks — with starter’s minutes. As the second-round pick’s game grows during this Knicks season of auditions, so does Robinson’s cockiness. “Probably around six,’’ Robinson said when asked about how many blocks he thinks he can average. “I feel like I...

Mitchell Robinson could be the Knicks' own Clint Capela

NY Daily News (Stefan Bondy) — Let’s imagine Mitchell Robinson wasn’t so foul-happy. Let’s say he mastered the subtleties of defending, on top of his obvious talents for its more brutal elements, and stayed on the floor for more than 30 minutes per game. How many blocks could the center average? “Probably around six,” Robinson...

Ex-Knicks star Al Harrington covertly became a weed mogul

NY Post (Dan Martin) — Al Harrington made more than $90 million in an NBA career that lasted 16 seasons. The star out of St. Patrick High School in Elizabeth, who became a first-round pick of the Pacers and spent parts of two seasons with the Knicks, instead of easing into retirement has embarked on a unique next chapter. And...

The next step in Dennis Smith’s Knicks progression

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The day after Dennis Smith Jr.’s spectacular Sunday performance, the Knicks’ potential point guard of the future was slated to go on a food-shopping date.

Smith Jr. gives Knicks glimpse of just how good he can be

NY Post (Howie Kussoy) — Nothing the Knicks received in the trade for Kristaps Porzingis and Co., was more valuable than the cap space that will be created this summer to allow the team an opportunity to sign two max free agents. But an incredibly athletic 21-year-old lottery pick in his second season could end up being a pretty nice...
